“Really interested”: Fabrizio Romano claims Tottenham made late enquiry to sign La Liga star on loan



Tottenham made late enquiry for Eder Militao, claims Fabrizio Romano

Speaking on the Here We Go Podcast (subscription required), reputed Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano has revealed that Tottenham Hotspur made an attempt to try and sign Eder Militao in the January transfer window.

The 22-year-old Brazilian had been strongly linked with a move to Tottenham in the recently concluded transfer window. However, a move never materialised with Jose Mourinho & co. going through a quiet period in the window.

However, Romano has now claimed that Tottenham did make an enquiry to take Militao on loan with an option to buy. However, the club’s enquiries were shot down by Real Madrid, who have been struck down by serious injury problems at the back.

“Yes, and we mentioned about Militao many times in the past few weeks, and the Tottenham possibility, and what we can say is that Tottenham were really interested in Militao. They were asking for him on a loan with a buy option and no obligation to buy, only a buy option in the last week of transfers.

“But Madrid said always no, only because they have a no centre-backs with a lot of injuries and the covid situation, so they were preferring to keep this player, and that’s why it was so complicated.”

Militao has struggled for game time since joining Real Madrid from FC Porto in the summer of 2019. Despite his lack of minutes in Spain, the Brazilian remains a talented defender with great potential. A move for him in the winter window could have served us well, what with the defence not convincing a great deal of late.

However, Madrid’s stance meant a move was never likely.
